And, we're off!

Since NaNo has officially started, I decided to open up this thread to work as a support group for those participating.

What can we do here? We can talk about our projects, share tips, support each other - we all know it's not easy -, ask questions if we need to... It's basically a thread for us to walk each other through this. For last year, we had a group on Skype, but since not everybody uses it, I decided to open it up here for us all to use.

Feel free to post anything at all here!

I actually had the opposite problem. I had about five different concepts and had to settle on one. XD

Alright I have a concept but I don't have any characters. It's at least some progress

LET'S DO THIS.

I just need to remember my login and keep my fingers crossed that the craziness dies down ._.

I have let some people know I'm only available for absolute needs. My family tends to want attention whenever I'm busy. >.>
(Not 'necessary' attention, that I would give - it's mostly wanting to do things and go places they won't during the rest of the year).

As of right now I am 5 words from my daily word count!

So far I've played the 'I have an idea but not sure where it's going so I'm just going to keep writing and hope it works out' game...while also emailing myself little snippets of writing between classes =D

You're doing pretty well! I'll know my WC when I get off work, but I really hope I can reach it. As tomorrow is a holiday, I'll hopefully be able to up my count tomorrow as well. I'm actually pretty excited about the story I have settled for.

What's it going to be about? :)

I hope to get some more written tonight...11pm-12am looks like it might be my only set time for a while.

I actually got a really cliché theme from one of those prompt sites (redemption through true love) and challenged myself to try and make something out of it. XD

This is super dope, but comes at an awkward time for me... I've been hankering to write short stories! They probably wouldn't take that, right?

I guess I can grind the gears for a novel, though...

To win NaNo, you have to achieve 50k words, but it's still a good moment to just get that writing done and create something you have been postponing for a while. XD

Totally forgot to add this for the first time participants.
Don't bother with editing during the month. In December, there is the editing part, I forgot the name now. So, in November, worry only about getting those words out!

Second day update:

3337 words at the end, two new chapters finished (I had only managed the first one yesterday) and ended up adding a new chapter on the outline because of the path my third chapter took on its own. >.>

Does anyone else want to share their updates for today?

Erm...I'm not done writing for the night but currently I'm sitting at 3747 words and counting :)

I don't have chapters though since I don't think ahead that far but I have line breaks between me switching from one team to the other.
